Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday chateau / country house in Mercatale

The apartment was once a hayloft of a seventeen century villa. It has been elegantly restored and faces a silver coloured olive tree field.

It is a very comfortable holiday-home immersed in nature, surrounded by the many beauties of the Chianti region. It is close to Florence and Siena (approx. half an hour drive).

The ground floor consists of a sunny sitting and dining room next to the kitchen, overlooking the backyard. The entrance is thruogh a small garden.

The main bedroom with a small study, is located in the first floor, next to the bathroom with shower; the wooden stairs lead to the 'mansarda' that has a small and cosy bedroom.

lieux très agréable et très bien situé

  • 5 of 5

La description correspondait bien à la réalité : une petite maison/appartement très propre dans une belle bâtisse retapée, avec une très belle vue sur les collines, oliviers et vigne. Très tranquille. Sut trois niveau : entrée cuisine salle à manger, à l'étage grande chambre et salle de bain, sous les toits grande chambre avec trois lits. Propriétaire très sympathique et parlant très bien français. Conseils fournis avec le sourire et toujours très discret. Très bon vin "riserva" du chianti classico (deux fois plus cher au duty free ..). Je n'ai pas encore ouvert la bouteille d'huile d'olive qui nous a été offerte. Endroit parfait pour rayonner en Toscane : Florence à 30 minutes, Sienne au sud à moins d'une heure ..1h05 par l'autoroute pour aller à Lucca (que je recommande) ainsi que San Gimmignano ..et Volterra. Merci à la famille Rovida pour leur accueil. Grazie mille. Sylvie de Toulouse (couple + enfant et 2 grand mères : )

Très joli domaine

  • 5 of 5

Au milieu des oliviers et des vignes, cette location est très bien placée. Proche de Florence, 45mn et de Sienne, 1 heure, idéale pour sillonner dans le Chianti.

Le gîte était conforme à nos attentes, et le propriétaire très sympathique. Bon accueil. Nous le recommandons.

Idylle pur mitten im Chianti-Gebiet - traumhaft!

  • 5 of 5

Von den Fotos her hatten wir eine schöne Umgebung erwartet, aber dass die Wahrheit noch besser ist, hätte ich wirklich nicht gedacht! Und doch: kein Auto und keine Straße zu sehen, nur Bilderbuch-Landschaft auf 360°! Ruhe pur mitten in Weinbergen und Olivenhainen, dazu noch extrem freundliche und nette Gastgeber! Schon der Willkommengruß, eine Flasche eigener Wein mit berühmter Etikette und ein Fläschchen eignes Olivenöl haben uns sofort wohl fühlen lassen. Als dann ein paar Tage später ein weiterer Teil der Gastgeberfamilie mit Kindern kam, war es noch mehr als perfekt: die Kinder haben zusammen gespielt und sich super verstanden!

Die Lage ist perfekt, um sowohl Florenz als auch alle bekannte Ziele im Chianti-Gebiet sehr schnell zu erreichen. Selbstverständlich auch für weitere Ziele in der Toskana. Durch die Ruhe vor Ort aber waren wir weniger getrieben als sonst und haben eher kürzere Ausflüge gemacht, damit wir immer wieder den Garten und den einmaligen Blick genießen können.

Auch zu Fuß kann man direkt mehrere Ziele in der Nähe ansteuern. Das Ortszentrum mit Bäckerei, Bar, Restaurant, Supermarkt und alles Nötige ist nur wenige Minuten zu Fuß entfernt. Mit dem Bus kann man auch bequem Florenz erreichen.

Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder, dieses Stück Idylle wollen wir wieder erleben!

By Car

To reach Il Noce coming from the Highway A1 exit at Firenze-Certosa and get immediately into the 'superstrada' (toll-free highway) to Siena. Exit at S. Casciano (it is the first exit you will find) and follow the signs for S. Casciano. As you reach the village keep on the street you are coming from until you find the signs for Mercatale on your left. Mercatale is about 6 km from S. Casciano. Once in Mercatale you will find a crossing: keep the right (you shall not go to the centre). After about 200 metres you will see on the right the 'Banca del Chianti Fiorentino' and the 'Ceramiche Ceccarelli' shop. Turn immediately on the right and take Via Poggio Borgoni. The land road leads to the entrance of the owner's villa, which has the number 79. Go to the right following the street which ends in the farm's court.

We can give information about gluten free products available in local supermarkets or restaurants, ice cream and pizza in the area where you can eat gluten-free.
